Check out Whistle Video’s short documentary, which gives an insight into the work of Sheffield based artist Andrew Hunt, and features his recent Making Ways funded exhibition, Portraits from the Market.
Working with photographer Chris Saunders, Andrew invited patrons and stall holders of Sheffield Markets to participate in our impromptu portrait studio. Using photographs taken here, he painted a series of large-scale photo-realistic portraits, which celebrate diversity and community and aimed to engage new audiences in the artistic process. They were exhibited in May/June 2018 as part of the Yorkshire Artspace’s Ways of Making programme.
The film, entitled Patience, explores how Andrew creates his amazing work and the process and determination it took to make the work for the exhibition.
